Berry Special

Afternoon folks.
I'm not usually around at this time of the week but for one reason or another I find myself with some crafty time. I'm not feeling guilty because my craft class has been cancelled so I'm making up for it!

My card today is inspired by a couple of challenges out there.


When I saw the latest colour challenge at LIM, I thought about a set of Avery Elle stamps I got awhile ago and thought it would combine well with a couple of other challenges -One Layer Simplicity and Without Words.
I started by masking off a strip on a plain white card with Post Its then stamped the small berries in Memento before colouring in berry colours with Copics. A hand drawn line along the edges with a black chisel tip Copic, crisps the design up and the sentiment says it all!

I'm joining in over at -

  1. This is so eye catching Jules, really fabulous and the colours are perfectly true to life, even on a computer screen. Not a great day in Dorset, although I was at work this morning. It's been windy, drizzly and really cold, still the forecast looks better again from tomorrow :0) xx
